the paint is thick and and bright. the balls have a brittle shell so they break easily on contact hardly ever in the barrel. actually, i shot 500 of these balls and not 1 broke in my barrel. i use a piranha sts g2 titanium.
nothing rly, except sometimes you can get some bad balls and sometimes if you go through yuor bag of balls and try to pick out the bad ones you might miss a few cause the shell doesnt look broken but actually is. and that they suck in moist air. they absorb the moisture and blow up and get rly rly soft! dont ever use them through brush they break on the smallest twig!
these paintballs are great! hellz better than the winchester balls that ive used. these balls feed well through your barrell and work excelent! the price is a bit high for paint but its worth it. i totaly recomand these for speed ball!
I have exactly 5-10 mins worth of experience with this paintball, but bear with me. I was playing a game last week and I ran out of ProBall. I was getting ready to walk out of my friend's woods when another friend of mine wanted me to cover him -- he threw me enough to fill my hopper and then we went at it 2 vs 2. We were playing a war game... well, let's just say you have to say 'uncle' to leave the field. The two people we were going against were fairly new to the game, and I didn't realize the paint was going to be that accurate. I was shooting a 99' Bob Long Autococker with a 14" Boomstick (N2 powered) - has some tricked stuff, but I don't feel like mentioning it -- anyways, when my other friend ran out I was able to easily pummel him with a coat of yellow paint. He quickly ran back behind a shelter, and I decided to follow. He poked his head around in time to see me coming, and he shot a few balls at me, I was easily able to shoot his gun twice and his hand once within that time range as well. He withdrew his gun, and I ran around the shelter, hitting him about 7 more times before he cried out. I wasn't hit once. Accuracy was dead on, and I wasn't even used to getting the shots in the exact spots I was aiming -- so it was a triumph for me :)
Umm... if I had to say something it would be -- they didn't make it through the thick folliage that I tried to shoot through, but I guess I was dumb for trying.
Excellent paint! Break nicely -- on the enemy, not in your barrel. Color stands out well and you can tell where you are hitting... and that is usually where you are aiming. Like I said, I had a total of about 5 mins with these paintballs, but I am going to try my best to use the every time I go from now on. I have heard the prices are stiff, but I am going to find somewhere to get them cheap if it's the last thing I do. Considering I got about 200 free, I can't complain. For those of you who take time to aim -- take the time to spend the extra cash and make your shots count!
there is no other paintball company that capsulates paintballs better than these hellfires. they are brittle, and leave a hella good stain so wipers wont be a problem. real accurate too. my fav paint to use.
you have to get them fresh or they lose performance like any other paint, but hellfires lose it a little quicker , but who would buy hellfire and let it sit around ?
good tourney paint. i reccomend only guns that are easy on paintballs ( electronic guns , cockers, mags )
RPS All Star - The quality is about on par, just the caliber is slightly smaller than this
Draxxus Hellfire - EXACT same stuff
RPS Marballizers - Well you compare high end with high end and high price with high price........
Just do a little barrel to bore size match and you'll figure it out.
These paintballs are Flatline friendly btw.
High quality paintballs
Nice thick fill
Hard to clean if breaks in bag
Doesn't taste good
Normally I wouldn't EVER spend $70 on a case of paint, but hey it's Draxxus, i'll give it a shot. When I received the paintballs, there were a few breaks, but after a bit of cleaning up in one bag I was ready to go (Note: cleaning the paint is a bizzznatch!)
The paintballs shot nice and consistent and not one paintball broke in my A-5. Theres nothing really special about these paintballs just personally preference. I personally would rather save about $7 and spend it on All Stars instead. But if Draxxus floats your boat then well, I guess there you go. Quality made sense since it's price is around the high priced paintballs. The expensive price made me ration my paintballs =|
If you crave really really good paint and have a really really stuffed wallet then sure go ahead.
My two cents.....over and out
8 out of 10

These are great balls. They can't be wiped.
They do not curve.
They fly well with the right kind of marker.
They produce a lot of pain :-)
When I used the Kingman hammer I got a lot, and I mean a lot of balls breaking. It really sucked because it screwed my game up and I had to switch to my back up brass eagle, :-( I don't know if it's just the paint or the Hammer but my guess is it was the hammer.
These are great balls. To my dismay I only had 500 along with me at my game. They went by all too fast. If you want great balls at a fairly cheap price get these.
2002 Vision Impulse maxxed out, Evil Pipe Barrel, OTB 90 frame, 88 Pure Energy HPA
Evil PIPE Barrel
Color is awesome, unfortunately that is all
1000 rounds all had dimples and some had a strange seam
I purchased 1000 rds and was so excited. I get my pipe out and the balls roll right out of my .683 back. The balls looked awful, and shot awful! I was very disappointed went back to Allstars! They are the bomb! I put the allstar in and night and day difference. They definately made a bad first impression, so I most likely will not be coming back anytime soon.
Cost was way too much for a ball with this many problems. I really wanted to like this ball based on every ones review. Chances are I got a bad batch. If their quality department can't catch these type of issues then sorry I will be playing PMI/RPS
